30-minute weekly radio program for October 19, 2010.
Our nation's Founders distrusted business corporations. They ensured that corporations were tightly regulated and restricted. Jefferson worried that, if corporations broke free from this control, they'd end up running the country. In a fine talk, environmental activist and business expert TED NACE describes the history of corporations and their frequent battles with The People--some of which The People won. Also a fine monologue by K.D. on the branding of everything, and two relevant songs.
Original Nace recording--edited to a fare-thee-well by K.D.--courtesy of Sue Supriano's "Steppin' Out of Babylon" (suesupriano.com). Sue's complete half-hour interview with Nace (2004) is available here: http://www.radio4all.net/index.php/program/8582
